    My First Turkey on a Weber

    Ok folks, It's going to be an early Thanksgiving's dinner at the house tomorrow because I won't be home on the 27th so I'm going to do the turkey on the Weber P.P. for the first time. I will try to keep you all posted step by step as I am doing it. Step one: The 18 lb. Butterball turkey has been thawing for 4 days in the fridge. Click image for larger version

            Thanks Huskee, I never thought of it that way but, it is. I will probably be driving it a decade from now as they just don't make them like that anymore.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
